Heron gluttony ?

This heron was seen the day after we first saw the Coot youngsters. The heron is standing here just opposite our backgarden water front, on the other side of the water (on the golf course), where the photo of ‘our’ Coot youngsters was taken.

Although not a predator as such, a heron knows its way. Believe it or not this is not limited to frogs and fish. We have one seen eating a cormorant in one piece (sorry not on photo).

We are very suspicious about it being responsible for the disappearance of the two youngsters as we can now confirm that they for sure have disappeared.
